Hey girls! I need advice on something. I. feel. so. overwhelmed. I don’t think I was ready at all for what college is doing for me. I’m in my first year of colleg and well.. So far I hate it. I feel anxious all the time. All I think about it school and I’m so stressed out I cant even study.. When I come home everynight I start crying.. It’s not okay and so far I’m not loving college at all. People said it would be fun but its not! I’m scared and anxious and exhausted. I just want to hit pause on everything and just take a break.. I hate college. I hate it so much. Its not worth the anxiety.. My anxiety levels are through the roof! I’m having a hard time balancing everything.. HELP. please. 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁

What kind of support does your college offer to new students? Chances are, there’s someone you can talk to for support…it might even help to sign up for some kind of peer tutoring to help with any subjects you’re having a hard time keeping up with. Find out what kind of support system they offer, and take advantage of it! I’m sure they can give better advice than we can 😉
But some basic techniques for stress relief:
Just some ideas 🙂

I understand where you’re coming from! I’m a sophomore, but my freshman year I was just NOT ready! I commuted, and I separated school from home from church. I’d REFUSE to do any work at home! Which sounds ridiculous, but time in between classes, going to this local cafe, all of this allowed me to come home and NOT think about school, allowed me to go out on weekends with my friends, and enjoy my free time! Don’t be afraid to look for Christian fellowship on campus either! Don’t think for a second you’re the only one going through this, because I promise you you’re not! After all, there is nothing new under the sun! Remember to breathe, and pray. And sometimes, go ahead, skip a day of classes, paint your nails, read your bible, pray. It’s okay to do that, and sometimes it’s needed. I pray this finds you well, and that something I’ve said will resonate with you!

I’m a junior in college right now and I feel you! One thing that has helped me get through those feelings was realizing that it does not have to be tedious and painful if you have a structure. I went on amazon and ordered so many books on how to get A’s in college. There are so many resources available to help you learn more efficiently and excel at college. It definitely can be challenging especially for majors involving a lot of science like mine which is ccommunicative disorders and sciences. I organize my time on google calandar which totally helps. I organize my documents on onedrive.com which has aso been a lifesaver. I study better in groups too. Learning becomes less stressful and way more fun when you do it with smart funny classmates who teach things in a better way than the professor does. Create a Sunday ritual because it sets the tone for the week that follows and plan everything. If you take control of your Sunday, you take control of your week. And also destress by hanging with friends and family that day after church. Have fun too! Don’t overthink it. Do a little schoolwork everyday and space it out to make it more bearable. Just imagine how you might be able to do more for God’s kingdom and help others more with an education and understand your motive for being in college in the first place. If you understand “why”…..then “how” becomes easier.

While I really agree with those above, many in college find they have issues with stress, anxiety, depression, and so much more. My college offers a great program where you can get free counseling on campus! If they have that, I urge you to go. Even if it is to have someone to rant to about how unfair your bio teacher was, or to understand if you have an issue that requires more counseling/medication, its so helpful.
I wish you luck, and try to do a little less next semester!
